During some of the heavy bass notes, the recording gets saturated completely. I would think that a matrix wouldn't distort on both sources. Also, it doesn't seem to have that matrix seperation, hard to describe how I hear it. I love matrix recordings, best of both worlds.

The first time I heard this recording I thought the heads found a work-around to the soundboard downloads. Call it an audience recording!

I'm guessing NAK 300 shotguns directly in front of the stacks, however I have never been there so it's hard to know.

But that may be the actual bass distortion. For one I'm pretty certain the sbd is that way and more importantly I knew a friend who was at this show and he always described how Phil's bass was so powerful and thick that you could feel it bounce off of you. Probably kind of like a punk driving 10 blocks away with his subwoofer only with actual good music?

If it was overloading at the soundboard, then it could be.

I recorded a concert at Deer Creek where the taper section was right smack dab in front of the monitors that played out over the lawn area. Pulling a number out of the air, I'd say 50 feet away. The source was so loud and clear that the recordings came out great. I wasn't using shotguns, but those who had them were pointing them directly into the speakers instead of at the bands primary monitors. I am guessing those recordings would sound like this one.
